Indian Killed His Brother-in-law in Mahnomen County, While Intoxicated.
Sheriff Blanchard of Mahnomen county arrived in Crookston with Wah-We-Yea-Coming of Elbow Lake, Becker county, who was the cause of death of his brother-in-law Pym-Way-Gwon-Abe whom he struck across the head with a shovel at a medicine dance at Mahnomen, inflicting an awful wound four inches long and at one point extending into the cavity of the brain. The foul deed was committed last Friday when the two Indians in an intoxicated state entered into a quarrel. The victim did not die from the effects of his injuries until early Monday morning. The murderer seems unaware of his offense and showed no resistance to the officers of the law.

The prisoner was first taken to Mahnomen where he was given a preliminary hearing. He was bound over and will remain in the Crookston jail until next term of court in Mahnomen county, in October when he will receive his trial.
